Partial reopening of Public Libraries from 19 February

From 19 February 2021, the Hong Kong Central Library, six major and 31 district libraries reopened their adult library, young adult library, children's library; and offer lending and returning of library materials and collection of reserved items. The libraries implement special opening hours, limit the number of people entering the library and adopt other precautionary measures (including users are required to scan the "LeaveHomeSafe" QR code or register their names, contact number and the date and time of the visit before admission). Please refer to the library notice on the Details.

Book drops of the Hong Kong Public Libraries and self-service library stations will continue to provide service.

Calculation of overdue fines will be resumed from 5 March for all library items borrowed before the reopening of public libraries and not returned or successfully renewed before 5 March, except those borrowed from the mobile libraries. Readers are advised to return the overdue items in order not to incur overdue fines.

Public libraries online services make use of certificates issued by the Hongkong Post to encrypt data during network transmission to protect your personal data. Each of the e-Certs issued by Hongkong Post bears a digital signature supported by a Hongkong Post CA root certificate that proves the authenticity of the e-Cert. To ensure the network security in using online services, Hongkong Post will regularly renew the e-Certs they issued. Effective from 5 Nov 2010, the new e-Certs are adopted to the library online system. Readers please configure your browser to recognize the new certificates issued by the Hongkong Post in order to use the library online services.

Please visit the following page of Hongkong Post(http://www.hongkongpost.gov.hk/product/download/root/index.html) or click here to download and install the Hongkong Post CA root certificates (Hongkong Post e-Cert CA 1-10) as illustrated.
